I really want to buy a K90... I know its way above my 4.0 skill level but something about it is calling out to me. I don't know what it is or even why I have this desire. I can even see it in my hands- I see rallies and matches won, I see aces and cross-court winners. I know that my PDRs are sufficient for my skill level but I want something that I know shouldn't be mine. I even dream about the K90:-?

What's a guy to do? Do I go all in and take the beatings that will come with a racquet of such weight or play with what I play well with?

Someone please help...

whats calling out to you is your desire to be like Fed

u are in for a rude awakening

it is a tough racquet to use.... but maybe you have the game for it... if so, it is sweet

also check out the 18x20 6.1 95..... i personally think its more of a friendly version to the 6.0 85 than the K90 is

come to think of it... i think the 6.0 85 is easier to use than the K90

I had the same calling to switch from my dunlop 300g to a K90 and I did it 2 months ago. I am definately taking a beating with this frame in doubles however I seem to be ok with this in singles. Im a 4.0 level player and my game has gotten more consistent in singles with this racquet. Not hitting long as much as I used to with the 300G. I have lost some topspin and it gets heavy in the 2'nd hour but is doing OK. My doubles partner is looking at me with strange looks because I now suck on my returns and volleys with this heavy frame.

Don't assume that it's right for you just because Federer uses it (yeah, right, hahahaha). You may love it but you may hate it too. There is no perfect racquet for every player, you just have to demo it and see if it's right for you.

I don't play much doubles so that's not a worry to me and my singles matches are always 2 sets- one way or the other. I think I played 1 3-set match all of last summer.

I still am unsure if it was the right racquet switch because I have moments of pure brilliance with this racquet and then really awful moments too. I have more ups and downs with this racquet than I ever did with the 300G. If you really let this racquet flow it will rip some beautiful shots. If you are hesitant and unsure it will make you pay. All I can say is that it is demanding and accents your flaws more than my dunlop did. It is a great racquet and I believe that with more time (hours) with it. My game will improve.

You just got to prepare early and let it flow like a golf swing.

You just have to try it for a while.

There is nothing as sweet as hitting a crisp shot off the sweet spot with this racquet, seeing your opponent flail at a shot that kicks like a mule into the corner.

There is nothing so sour as your same opponent chuckling at you for not getting the stick around in time and feeling the painful buzz of a mishit.

The K90, like most demanding rackets, is definitely a feast or famine stick (at the 3.5, 4.0 level, anyway, below that I'd imagine it's more famine than feast). I would definitely demo before taking a 200 buck plunge.

K90's: Buy me ~~ !

It's a great frame, just need to prepare and setup early everytime b/c you're gonna need a strong solid smooth stroke.

Having said that, it also slices/dices/blocks/hacks great too :) Hell, if it could cook, it would do that great too.

No regrets man, you won't know until you try it out. If it IS too demanding, you can always go to a different frame.

Any frame will require an adjustment period to get really grooved so this is really no different ( although it is indeed on the heavy side ).

K90's: Buy me ~~ You know you want try the K !

Played a couple sets with my new Asian K90 today. I'm lovin the maneuverability with this sucker!!! My forehand was more consistent. It seems like the perfect balance for me between my PS 85 (cuts like butter, not enough topspin) and my US K90 (great spinner, takes an hour to get the forehand around). The biggest thing I noticed was that the AK90 swings fast!! I can generate a fast swing with just my wrist when I'm stretched out wide, something the other racquets never allowed me to do. Feels like a more modern racquet like my NSix-One 95. They are roughly the same weight, but I get much more control with the AK90. I just have to put my normal string in this AK90 to get a tad bit more power and I think were gonna have some good times this summer. I'll elaborate more when I get to use it against some 4.0-5.0 guys with my ideal string setup of full gut, if anyones interested of course ;)

Thats your opinion if you want to go out and buy the K90. Personally I don't think its a wise decision because you are already doubting your ability to play with this racquet. I would just stick with the PDR's that you play with now because if you think your all of a sudden going to play like Sampras and/or Federer, you may be disappointed.

geesechops
04-21-2008, 02:40 PM
All my friends who play with PDR's or any Babo's hate my Wilson Tours when they try them out. I think they are VERY different racquets. But, i think the fit of racquet and player has allot to do with the type of strokes you have. So in this regard I think it is very personal...so in closing, you should just buy the darn thing. I don't like demoing because the strings usually suck and I can't get a good feel for the stick, unless you regularly use cheap multi stuff.

Geesechops is right- most of the time demos are strung w/ cheap string that provide no feedback whatsoever. My local proshop also removes the leather grips and replaces them with some bogus replacement grips. Isn't using a leather grip part of the Tour 90 mistique? Anyway- a 24 hour demo isn't going to help me to decide- perhaps I ought to just buy it and ditch the PDR or maybe not!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:???:

I just use a leather grip on everything I own, but I did use synthetic on my K90 at what time, thats just preference, it really doesn't matter. Don't buy it for the mystique. More people look at me like "ohh this guy thinks he's Federer :rolleyes:." Instead of "Wow, this guy can yield a 12 oz racquet with a 90 sq in head." Although you will get the latter too, I'd rather have an all black paint job.

I understand what you mean. I like to fantasize about using an APDC, but it's not my kind of racquet at all. Maybe a custom paintjob is the answer? ;)

I'm not daring enough to risk screwing up my racquets like that. And plus, the Aero bridge is kind of difficult to paint on... lol.

Im a 4.0 level player and my game has gotten more consistent in singles with this racquet. Not hitting long as much as I used to with the 300G. I have lost some topspin and it gets heavy in the 2'nd hour but is doing OK. My doubles partner is looking at me with strange looks because I now suck on my returns and volleys with this heavy frame.

I can personally attest to this, as Dunlop 300 is my doubles partner! :) I notice the ups and downs, but I know he is committed to using this frame and improving with it. If you're a decent player, you can adjust to any frame. I remember in days past (1970's and 80's), where there were limited frames and you just kind of picked one because your friend had one or something. You grew with the frame, got used to it, and when it came time to get a different frame, you measured every frame against that one. Don't be afraid.

If one can handle the swingweight, there is a huge upside to this racquet, even in doubles. In dubs, the key is not to get caught with the head down, because you don't have time to react (unless your pretty strong). From my brief demo with this racquet, it seems the plow through on this racquet does the work for you, especially on volleys and blocking/chipping returns back.

And don't worry what people say about the racquet only being for 4.5's or better. I know a 4.0 who's overweight, moves slow, and has no strokes at all. He uses the Original Tour 90, and uses the weight of that to chip, slice, and block balls to a lot of victories.

This is funny/ironic... just this past Saturday AM I was playing a 22 yo 4.5 (I'm 41 at the same level) and we were having a really good match.

He hit a low punch volley to my backhand near the baseline that I was able to get to and I hit a screaming cross court backhand 2 inches over the net that left him paralyzed. His comment was "man, I never get use to you guys that hit 1hbh's"... it was beautiful, and just like in golf... that 1 shot that makes it all worth while.

I was also drilling returns down the line and hitting high angle crosses - all morning long... was really fun. The feel and control I get with the K90 is just awesome.

It was a great example of how I play my game and how the K90 fits it and enables it so well.

Man, I love this sport and this frame!!!

(^^^one-handed backhands rule!)

It's the ole Pro Staff (85 original) mystique. I remember back in the latter 80s getting a Pro Staff and finding it hard to wield, and a very demanding racquet.

It forced me to get better, hone my technique, and improve my consistency. It was a scalpel. No more room for sloppy play, lazy strokes, or late preparation. It was either give up the game or play up to its potential.

And I did. And it would reward you with a great shot near the line. When you hit the sweetspot it felt so good, it almost said to me "you did that perfectly--good job, man."

I would say give it a try. I have been away from the sport for a year, but in the last month picked things back up. I had been using a Wilson 6.0 95 and a 95 Triad. Decided on a whim to pick up a K90. I can't put it down. I don't really follow pro tennis very much. My decision was based on some reviews and my own preferences. It is really a good stick. As others have said the difference between the 95 and 90 is very small. It took me three hitting seesions to get really used to it, but I am now ordering my second.

Ripping one-handed backhands for clean winners is what tennis is all about and why I play. :)

I admit, a well struck one handed backhand feels great. I have not played in monthes and played today, after all the one vs two talk i had to rip a few one handers. Most in warm up but one during the match.. Felt great and they were better than my buddy who has a one hander lol. But then the few that hit the service line woke me up, and went back to the trusty two.

Aren't you the guy who needed all the advice just to figure out what size bag to buy? And now you think you need a more challenging racquet. Hmmm. Better keep it simple.

He hit a low punch volley to my backhand near the baseline that I was able to get to and I hit a screaming cross court backhand 2 inches over the net that left him paralyzed. His comment was "man, I never get use to you guys that hit 1hbh's"... it was beautiful, and just like in golf... that 1 shot that makes it all worth while.

I was also drilling returns down the line and hitting high angle crosses - all morning long... was really fun. The feel and control I get with the K90 is just awesome.

It was a great example of how I play my game and how the K90 fits it and enables it so well.

Man, I love this sport and this frame!!!

I want an one-handed backhand duel with Breakpoint and Bubba or anyone who thinks his/her 1HBH is that good. I think I can out hit you guys with my N90. :oops::) Let me warn you up front that my 1HBH is just like Federer and Gasquet's. :twisted:

That can't be possible as Federer and Gasquet have different backhands.

Let me clarify, I hit flat like Federer's and topspin like Gasquet. Maybe I should post some videos. :)

What are you, 12 or something? Your comment doesn't really make sense flat or topspin... it's either like someone or it isn't.

Aside from your arrogance in your comment, I love the game and will hit with just about anyone at any time.

Let me know if you're ever in Ft. Wayne Indiana. I've cut more than a few juniors (I'm assuming you're a junior) down to size over the years.

Oh, and please post those videos. Can't wait for that.

Cant wait to see your vids...:shock:

Ps...Federer does not hit flat. Pro's often comment on how much spin he puts on the ball making it heavy and hard to handle...

Actually I just asked what size bag guys were using... but thanks for your concern pal- I'll handle it from here.

AD ^^^ A bit touchy are we?!? To the defense of the post, you do seem to rely quite heavily on other's opinions.

Ask away... it's what the board is for. My comment was to the effect that you tend to rely very much on other's opinions and want a tremendous amount of them, waffling back and forth.

My opinion, and it's just that, is to make informed decisions for yourself... However, if you like, there are plenty of people on the board who will be more than happy to make them for you.

There's not a lot of tolerance by members for issues like you trying to buy a K90 or not.

I want to see video's of him swinging those 13-14+ oz monsters. I know you got a camera Cash Money. I want to see the guy play that owns more Nike/Wilson stuff than Federer himself. Not to say I better than you...just curious, thats all ;)
